Having shared a series of predictions during our January webinar regarding how OSHA continue focusing on enforcement and rulemaking in Year 3 of the Biden Administration, we will take stock of what has happened at DOL and OSHA during the first 6 months of 2023, discuss surprise developments, and look ahead at the remainder of 2023 and beyond. We will take a close look at enforcement trends, including new emphasis programs, and check in on various rulemakings likely to matter to the regulated community. At the same time, we will evaluate how President Biden is faring on his promises to increase OSHA’s budget, grow the number of inspectors and generally be the best president for labor in history. We will also review key changes regarding compliance assistance, Voluntary Protection Programs, and other trends.
Participants in this webinar will learn:
• OSHA’s Regulatory Agenda, including rulemaking and policy setting priorities around Heat Illness, COVID-19, and other hazards
• Changes in Congressional oversight as the Republicans take control of the House
• Key organizational changes at OSHA
• New or renewed enforcement initiatives and emphasis programs
• Predictions for what employers can expect from OSHA for the remainder of 2023
